Based on the liturgical books and the calendars from the 9th–11th centuries preserved in Polish archives, the form of the Marian devotion in the Poznań diocese was sought. Despite the lack of preserved monuments representing the oldest Polish diocese, it was established that the service to the Blessed Virgin Mary had a liturgical character. The four main feasts in hon- or of the Mother of God, celebrated in the Western Church, were celebrated in Poznań, too. An analysis of the oldest liturgical formularies preserved in Polish and Western archives did not yield satisfactory results. Based on the available monuments, it is not possible to determine the content of the formularies destined for Marian feasts celebrated in Poznań.</span></p></div></div></div> Bogusław Kochaniewicz Copyright (c) 2019 Bogusław Kochaniewicz 2019-12-11 2019-12-11 33 7 22 10.14746/pst.2018.33.01 Kościół powszechny i Kościoły lokalne w nauczaniu papieża Franciszka https://pressto.amu.edu.pl/index.php/pst/article/view/20320 <div class="page" title="Page 37"><div class="layoutArea"><div class="column"><p><span>Mutual relations between the universal Church and local Churches belong to topics whose meaning increases and which return systematically in theological discussions.

The article presents Francis’ view on the relation- ship between the universal Church and local Churches, showing the dependence of papal views on the theological thinking of Cardinal Walter Kasper. At the same time, two additional issues (Peter’s primacy and the formulation of the particular Church) are indicated, which are important for the papal ecclesiology.</span></p></div></div></div> Tomasz Nawracała Copyright (c) 2019 Tomasz Nawracała 2019-12-11 2019-12-11 33 23 39 10.14746/pst.2018.33.02 Pneumatologia w eklezjologii Konstytucji Lumen gentium Soboru Watykańskiego II z perspektywy teologii Yves’a Congara https://pressto.amu.edu.pl/index.php/pst/article/view/20330 <div class="page" title="Page 62"><div class="layoutArea"><div class="column"><p><span>For all readers of the text of the </span><span>Lumen Gentium </span><span>constitution of the Second Vatican Council during this event, and also immediately afterwards, it seemed that the document focused solely on the explanation of the Church from the perspective of Christ. Some of the conciliar observers, espe- cially the Orthodox theologians, brought up criticism that the reflection of the Council was marked by a Christomonism. This study presents the question of the pneumatological implications of the ecclesiology contained in the </span><span>Lumen Gentium </span><span>constitution from the perspective of Yves Congar’s theological thought. As the analysis of the undertaken research will show, the answer of the French theologian not only provides an essential response to the objection of Christomonism based on a direct commitment of this theologian to the co-writing of </span><span>Lumen Gentium </span><span>as early as March 1963, but it also gives a thorough insight into the subject-matter referring to his theological achievements already before and mainly after the Council. The Dogmatic Constitution on the Church has a dis- tinct pneumatological dimension. The theology contained therein is related to all the theses on the subject as they were formulated by Yves Congar in 1973.</span></p></div></div></div> Artur Antoni Kasprzak Copyright (c) 2019 Artur Antoni Kasprzak 2019-12-11 2019-12-11 33 41 65 10.14746/pst.2018.33.03 Wiarygodność Kościoła w dzisiejszej Polsce https://pressto.amu.edu.pl/index.php/pst/article/view/20331 <div class="page" title="Page 81"><div class="layoutArea"><div class="column"><p><span>There are two purposes of this article: the first one — to clarify the meaning of the term ‘credibility of the Church in contemporary Poland’ from a theological perspective, and the second one — to describe the basic signs of such credibility and the difficulties they are facing.

The first part deals with the theological understanding of the Church’s credibility in contemporary Poland in the light of new researches and inspirations offered by Joseph Ratzinger’s ecclesiology and by the book </span><span>Oblicza Kościoła katolickiego w Polsce. 1050. rocznica</span><span>Chrztu </span><span>[Features of the Catholic Church in Poland.

The second part is focused on the signs of the Church’s credibility in Poland (sign of Peter, of the Apostolic Collegium, of unity, of holiness, of universality, of apostolicity, agapetological, praxeological, martyriological, and culture-creative), which started to be described about 25 years ago by Rev. Marian Rusecki, who was co-founder and the most excellent representative of the Lublin School of Fundamental Theology. The third part presents some new signs of the Church’s credibility in Poland according to the author of the article (charitable, staurological, resurrectional, paschal, anthropological-vocational, of freedom, of the priority of the Spirit and spiritual life, of peace and reconciliation, of protest, of the faith’s pure- ness). In the conclusion the author underlines the values of the semeiological method in describing and testing the credibility of the Church in contemporary Poland.</span></p></div></div></div> Krzysztof Kaucha Copyright (c) 2019 Krzysztof Kaucha 2019-12-11 2019-12-11 33 67 82 10.14746/pst.2018.33.04 Otwartość na dar stworzenia https://pressto.amu.edu.pl/index.php/pst/article/view/20363 <div class="page" title="Page 94"><div class="layoutArea"><div class="column"><p><span>An important duty of man is proper communication and relativity to creation. This is due to the unique situation of our being “in the middle” and our vocation to go out “in the opposite direction”. However, personal faith in God becomes a particularly ennobling factor, as it somehow deepens the human desire for closeness and solidarity with the whole created reality. Through true openness to the visible world, we learn more about the relationship between the individual and the community, as well between the human community and the whole creation. Ultimately, we are trying to take up the challenge of dealing responsibly with nature as a unique value today and with the right to continue in the future.</span></p></div></div></div> Jarosław Moskałyk Copyright (c) 2019 Jarosław Moskałyk 2019-12-11 2019-12-11 33 83 95 10.14746/pst.2018.33.05 The problem of conscience in the light of Pauline teachings https://pressto.amu.edu.pl/index.php/pst/article/view/20380 <div class="page" title="Page 112"><div class="layoutArea"><div class="column"><p><span>W artykule przedstawiono pogląd, że sumienie jest zasadniczym czynnikiem konstytuującym na- turę ludzką.

The TOB is a relevant part of ecclesiastical reflection due to the modern cultural context. The genesis of the TOB is deeply rooted in social, political and econo- mic development of the Western civilization after the Enlightenment and Positivism of the 19th c. The TOB is a part of theology which is a valid and necessary part of the human knowledge. The justification for the TOB comes from its subject matter, which is the human body. The human body transcends physical reality through its actions and points towards the invisible realm of the soul and morality. The TOB needs to be recognized as one of the ontological disciplines rather than a deontological one, only. The TOB can be categorized as a part of fundamental theology within systematic theology.</span></p></div></div></div> Michał Chaberek Copyright (c) 2019 Michał Chaberek 2019-12-11 2019-12-11 33 115 127 10.14746/pst.2018.33.07 Wczesnochrześcijańskie rozważania o imieniu Jezus https://pressto.amu.edu.pl/index.php/pst/article/view/20421 <div class="page" title="Page 154"><div class="layoutArea"><div class="column"><p><span>This study opens with a brief reflection on the typological value of the person and name of Josh- ua in the ancient Church. Christians saw the figure of Joshua as a foreshadowing of the saving work of Jesus Christ. According to patristic vision the order of grace in Jesus Saviour replaces the ancient order of the Law. On the basis of homonymy Joshua is associated with Christ. The intent of the study was also to present the historical beginning of the practice to invocate the Lord’s Name. To express the faith in Christ symbolically, the first Christians recurred to the use </span>of numerology and to the nomina sacra. This article argues that the ancient Christian literature contains sustained and substantial references to the name of Jesus as ‘Saviour’. It is possible to find the theological finality in the interpretation of Lord’s name. At every point of the discussion in the Patristic tradition it is found a considerable richness and significance of the name of Jesus (biblical, doctrinal and spiritual).</p></div></div></div> Mieczysław Celestyn Paczkowski Copyright (c) 2019 Mieczysław Celestyn Paczkowski 2019-12-11 2019-12-11 33 129 161 10.14746/pst.2018.33.08 Diecezja poznańska u schyłku Rzeczypospolitej Obojga Narodów https://pressto.amu.edu.pl/index.php/pst/article/view/20422 <div class="page" title="Page 173"><div class="layoutArea"><div class="column"><p><span>In the investigated period of the years 1768–1793, the Poznań diocese belonged to the Gniezno metropolitan area and comprised the territory of more than 28 000 square kilometers, divided into two parts — Great Poland and Masovia. Poznań bishops resided mainly in Warsaw, in the Masovian part. The diocesan office in the years 1768–1780 was held by Andrew Stanislaus Młodziejowski and in the years 1780–1793 by Anthony Onuphrius Okęcki, both involved in state issues, includ- ing the post of crown chancellors. Pontifical duties were performer mainly by bishops suffragan, while the diocese was managed by general curates. The cathedral chapter in Poznań, constituted by 10 prelates and 23 canons, was the elite of the clergy. In addition to that, there were other bodies of clergy like curates, penitentiaries, two missionary colleges, rorantists and altarists. Collegiate chapters existed in three churches in Poznań, as well as in Warsaw, Środa Wielkopolska (Great Po- land), Szamotuły and Czarnków. The area of the diocese was divided in to four archdeaconships — Poznań, Śrem, Pszczew and Warsaw — each divided into deaconships, amounting to the number of twenty nine. Within the territory of the diocese there were 466 parish churches and a significant number of churches and chapels of various character, with an abundance of priests. The clergymen derived mainly from the townspeople, and delegates of the bishop visiting the parishes positively assessed their moral conduct. In 1772 there were 78 male monasteries with 1549 monks and 17 female monasteries in the whole diocese.</span></p></div></div></div> Piotr Franciszek Neumann Copyright (c) 2019 Piotr Franciszek Neumann 2019-12-11 2019-12-11 33 163 175 10.14746/pst.2018.33.09 Tradycja katechizmów i podręczników katechetycznych w Wielkopolsce https://pressto.amu.edu.pl/index.php/pst/article/view/20423 <div class="page" title="Page 210"><div class="layoutArea"><div class="column"><p><span>The 1050 anniversary of the first bishopric in Poznań has become an opportunity to reflect on the contribution of the representatives of Great Poland to catechetical activity in Poland.

The presentation is done according to the scheme: determinants of spiritual life — the most important elements and manifestations of sanctity. The inferences and assertions resulting from the conducted analyses are included in the conclusion. The study is preceded by a recapitulation of the basic truths regarding Christian spir- itual life and the role of saints in the lives of Christians. Studies have shown, among other things, that each of the patrons came into the world in a family with a deep faith and received a vocation to dedicate their life to God. In saint Stanislaus and saint Urszula you can see great organizational talents, a very friendly and gentle reference to others, concern for those in need of help and support, and the greatness of their dedication to others. In blessed Bogumil, the most noticeable feature is his love for hidden life and the practice of severe penance. All three share a commitment to evan- gelization. Each of them reveals a passion for prayer, a concern for being in deep communion with Christ, living with Christ and for Him the experience of suffering and awareness of responsibility for the salvation of others, as well as distance to material goods.</span></p></div></div></div> Jacek Hadryś Copyright (c) 2019 Jacek Hadryś 2019-12-11 2019-12-11 33 233 247 10.14746/pst.2018.33.12 W służbie Chrystusowi.

All of them belong to the Poznań Church. Their heroic lives provide an opportunity to scrutinize contemporary culture, which is characterized by a process of disenchantment of the world, i.e. humanization of what formerly used to be divine, what belonged to God or led to Him. Today we witness a tendency to </span><span>sanctify </span><span>things human, things which are the work of man and enhance human pleasure, enjoyment of life and cheerful disposition... At the same time things divine and those that lead to God are dismissed or even forgotten.</span></p><p><span>Modern man has become increasingly autonomous. He no longer needs God seeing Him as unwanted or even redundant. Prayer, which animates saints, is now considered mere waste of time while obedience to God’s commandments is deemed ridiculous. This process also impacts our attitude to the saints. In Christian theology they are the teachers of the faith, witnesses of God and His truth. They are the good Samaritans that lift up those who fell, reminding them of their dignity received </span>from God and encouraging them to go ahead to meet God. But many of our contemporaries, believ- ers included, no longer perceive saints in this way. They do not expect from the saints lessons on life, but miracles in order to have a rich, healthy and happy life themselves. They look for miracle workers not witnesses and teachers of God’s truth, the prophets of a different world. As God’s wit- nesses the blessed and saints can “hold back” the process of disenchantment of the world and give the world a new eschatological dimension, the lost sacrum without which life on earth can change into a drama.</p></div></div></div> Zdzisław Kijas Copyright (c) 2019 Zdzisław Kijas 2019-12-11 2019-12-11 33 249 266 10.14746/pst.2018.33.13 Świętość dla świeckich.
